However when I read the first few lines I wanted to know more about this person who spoke these words, …I have heard it said that a man who cries is spineless, a weakling not worthy of his salt, but this I can tell you: a man who has never shed a tear has not y.....

I am amazed at the talented Bette Lee Crosby – #bookreviewer Salute

Cheryl Ann, as the story opens, is a young woman on the verge of turning 15. On the day the new neighbors m.....

Ophelia Browne owns an out of the way bed and breakfast with an apothecary. She is 90 years old and knows she needs to find someone to take over her business & her memories. See, Ophelia believes that objects hold memories from their previous owner.....

I did not want to put it down – #bookreviewer Salute

I did not want to put it down – #bookreviewer Salute Kathy on Goodreads says: I have previously read most of Bette Lee Crosby’s books and have loved them all. Memory House has a few bits and pieces of several of her other books incorporated, which for the reader brings up memories of other stories. And that’s what the book is about-memories. It’s a story of two women, one quite old, one quite young. Their individual stories follow very different paths.....

Baby Girl – #bookreviewer Salute

Baby Girl – #bookreviewer Salute Rachel on Goodreads says about Baby Girl: Baby Girl is the #4 book in the Memory House series but I think it can be read as a standalone novel, because the only character from the previous books is Ophelia Browne. I enjoyed getting to know the new main character, Cheryl Ann. It was a little suspenseful only because I became really engrossed in the story and was hoping Cheryl would find happiness. This book (and the entire series actually).....
